Updated Covid 19 Response – October 2020
Covid 19 forced many organizations – including Maranatha YYC – to re-evaluate its practices and as a result we removed access to our facility for worship and other ministry engagements. The past six months forced us to be creative in responding to new opportunities of worship and other ministry access means and we have seen God’s blessing to our faith community and through our faith community to the world around us.
As the restrictions upon groups connecting continue to lessen Maranatha YYC is excited to be able to resume in-house worship services. There are a number of guidelines and protocols – as provided by both provincial and city authorities – that will guide us so that we will provide as prudent and safe environment for all.
There will limitations from our previous ‘freedoms’ of worship but we are freed in our ability to encounter God and engage each other in a variety of ways. There are a couple of key aspects to our in-person worship services to help guide you:
We celebrate the truth that social distancing is not spiritual distancing and that Maranatha YYC is not just a building but an organization of God’s people. We are determined that while not all may be able to gather at the church, we will continue to still gather as a church. We will continue our work in providing Sunday Worship services (and the sermon output on this website) through digital means and are looking forward and ahead to what other opportunities that exist to engage in our ministry focuses of:
- worshipping God
- being discipled into God’s people
- fellowshiping as God’s people
- serving the many needs of God’s world as God’s people through stewardly living and giving.
We remain available through our membership, our leadership and our staff to serve if and when and how we can. Feel free to contact us and see where we can be the hands and feet of Jesus for you.
